According to the Chief of staff: “nobody will remember much what we say but generations to come will remember what is done, which is to begin the process of constructing what will be first class, state of the art facility which will be best and appropriate for the leadership of this country.”
This was even as the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina lauded the idea behind the project.
